Titans pick up 5th-year option on left tackle Taylor Lewan

October 16 2016 Tennessee Titans Offensive Tackle Taylor Lewan enters the field during pre-game action. The Tennessee Titans defeated the Cleveland Browns 28-26 at LP Nissan Stadium in Nashville Tn

According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson missed just four tackles during the 2016 season and received the 12th-best run defense grade among cornerbacks in the class. Davis will add the needed deep threat that Mariota was in need of last season and will immediately become his top target.

The Chargers have been looking for a dominant receiver since Vincent Jackson left for Tampa Bay in 2012. Dodd was still experiencing pain in his right foot, and Carraway, a quick pass rusher for TCU, is a decent insurance policy in case Dodd continues to struggle.

Wide receivers drafted in the first round have a relatively high bust rate.

Adams was expected to go within the top three picks.

Ross isn't the type of receiver you just make run a bunch of nine routes.

Davis set a career FBS record of 5,285 yards and had the second best number of career touchdown receptions with 52. Due to the trading back up to take Jack Conklin a year ago, the Titans were without a second-rounder.

Obviously the Titans medical staff has signed off on Davis being healthy or he wouldn't rate a No. 5 pick.

Tennessee's final pick at 241, was running back Khalfani Muhammad from the University of California.

"Unfortunately, the 6'3", 213-pound receiver was rehabbing an ankle injury suffered while training for the combine and did not participate in drills. He averaged 6.2 yards a carry. They are already going to be using a lot of roster spots on defenders who mainly play special teams. Such a trade might require the team to move all the way up to No. 2 overall with the San Francisco 49ers.

However, Davis is far from a one-year wonder. The Bears took quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the pick. According to BleacherReport, "Hue Jackson loves Mitch Trubisky" and they were debating drafting him at first overall.

The Chicago Bears surprised the National Football League by trading up to pick North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 pick.

The Titans still were sold enough on Davis to take him when players such as Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, LSU safety Jamal Adams and Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore were available to boost a defense that struggled against the pass previous year. If I was the general manager for Cleveland, I would try to trade the 52nd pick and maybe a future 2nd or 3rd round pick.

Reuben Foster, linebacker, Alabama to San Francisco at No. 31.

The draft always provides surprises.

Coming off a 1-15 season, the Browns need help everywhere.

All of the buzz in Chicago about the NFL Draft came three picks before his selection, but the Windy City had a reason to feel proud on Thursday night.

The NFL draft will begin in about an hour in Philadelphia.
